My Plate 10-31-12

Breakfast:
• Scrambled eggs (pastured) with diced ham (organic, uncured, nitrate/nitrite free)
• Leftover sliced sweet potatoes
• Leftover roasted asparagus
• Organic raspberries
• 1 cup black coffee
Lunch:
After breakfast I headed out the door to teach a CrossFit class, dressed-up members and all. After teaching and completing my own workout, I headed to a friend’s house for a nutrition talk. Take note that I went from 7:30 to noon without eating (no snacks) and felt great. Not hungry! A couple years ago, this would have been impossible. I would have been shaky, grumpy, and ravenous after just a few hours. 
Our hostess (my friend, Jody) made an awesome 
• turkey paleo chili
• and a paleo bread (good flavor and good for dunking)
Dinner:
This Halloween night we invited over some friends to join us for Trick-or-Treating and our fueling up meal. Here’s what we stuffed our bellies with…

First off, when my babies were born, I never thought I’d make them hotdogs to eat! Not even on special occasions. However, I think these dogs are great quality. Uncured, nitrite/nitrate-free, grass-fed, organic beef with spices and some salt. Applegate gets my approval on occasion. 
So, to go along with our dinner, I had my husband grill up some hotdogs for the kids (our boys and their little buddy).

Butternut squash and sage soup (I mostly followed Diane Sanfillipo’s recipe – check out the link)

• A variety of grilled sausages (anywhere from kale chicken, to mild italian) with organic sauerkraut 
• Sautéed bell peppers and onions (in coconut oil)
• Flash sautéed haricots verts (in coconut oil)
• Delicious spinach salad with awesome fixings (brought over by our friends, Cullen and Steve) and topped with a homemade dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic and seasoning. YUM!
My kids’ plates included:
• hotdog and sausage
• butternut squash soup
• haricots verts and a few peppers
• some salad fixings
Off to Trick-or-Treat we went. Check out my post on “Trick-or-Treat Bucket” to see what we handed out to the vampires and ladybugs that came to our door. As far as our kids, we let them indulge in a few pieces while we were out (which they thought was pretty awesome) and save a couple of their favorites from their buckets. The rest gets donated.
